EURO 2013: Quarter-final
EURO best: Quarter-finals (2013)
How they qualified: Group 1 winners, W7 D0 L1 F34 A2 Pts21
Coach: Feryr Alexandersson
One to watch: Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir (midfielder, Wolfsburg)
What to watch out for: Long before Iceland's heroics at UEFA EURO 2016, the women had established themselvesat the top level, qualifying in 2009 and getting through their group four years later. They achieved qualification this time with relative ease, only dropping points in a last-match defeat by Scotland with a finals place already secure.
Iceland suffered a serious pre-tournament blow with the loss to injury of Margrét Lára Vidarsdóttir, whose goals have been a key reason for their rise in status over the last decade. Also out with the same cruciate ligament rupture is her sister Elísa and Dóra María Lárusdóttir. Still, they do boast ten-goal joint qualifying top scorer Harpa Thorsteinsdóttir as well as talented midfielders Hólmfrídur Magnúsdóttir, Gunnarsdóttir, Dagný Brynjarsdóttir and Fanndís Fridriksdóttir.
